(8:16 @cobblestone, 16:8 @cache, 16:3 @overpass)
The first map was HellRaisers' pick — Cobblestone. Our five started in defense, but that beginning was hard to be called unsuccessful. For the entire first half HellRaisers hadn't managed to take a single series of rounds. Indeed, having got the initiative, the American team wasn't going to lose it. As a result, at the side switching HellRaisers had only the losing minimal of five points. After the side switching the situation didn't change — our players had managed to take only three rounds before OpTic Gaming got a victory. 16:8 — the Canadian team turned out to be stronger on the first map.
On the second map, Cache, HellRaisers started in defense and demonstrated a rather strong side — almost all buy rounds would end in our team's favor. At some moments OpTic Gaming were very close to turn the tide, but HellRaisers were always one step ahead. The side switching took place at the score of 10:5 in our team's favor. On the attack side HellRaisers didn't face any problems either — having overcome not the strongest opposition of the rival, HellRaisers took the second map.
The decisive map was Overpass, on which HellRaisers started in attack. From the first round the course of the game was being under our team's control. HellRaisers were surely domination over the map in the first half — they took 13 rounds out of 15 possible and left almost no chances to the rival for a comeback. 16:3 — HellRaisers win this meeting.
